New students tuck in at barbecue

New students at South Cheshire College enjoyed a barbecue and motivational talks at a freshers’ fair.

The barbecue on the college green was hosted by hospitality and catering students.

Social entrepreneur and world music artist Mikel Ameen delivered motivational workshops to help new students focus on reaching their potential.

There were also talks by guest speakers from leading companies including Odeon, Topshop and O2.

Lee Smith, vice principal for curriculum and learner support, said: “We wanted to ensure that students get the best possible first impression, so we staged a number of activities which are enjoyable for learners and help them settle in quickly and make new friends.”
